It was the week before Christmas when young and adventurous Pietari uncovers the truth about Santa Claus. Legend has it that the jolly old man is more of a foe than a friend. A group of American scientists is also looking to uncover some facts in Pietari’s quiet rural town in northern Finland. It turns out that the most well-kept Christmas secret ever lies 500 meters below ground. This dark secret and Pietari unleash an unforeseen chain of events, after which, Christmas will never, ever, be the same again.
The long-awaited follow-up (actually a prequel) to the two award winning and cult online hit shorts (Rare Exports Inc (2003) and Rare Exports Inc – Safety Instructions (2005), which have more than 1 million downloads on YouTube), by up-and-coming talent commercial and music video director, Jalmari Helander, telling the story of how Santa Clauses are hunted down and domesticated to prepare them for export all around the world! Its visually stunning, 80’s style kid-friendly horror-fantasy vibe, Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale contains all the ingredients to be the perfect Christmas cult-film we’ve all been waiting for: a perfect concept, superb visuals, great actors, and a story, tinged with black comedy, with a multi-faceted message that speaks to everyone.
For one day only the real Santa Claus will be in London’s West End, but for safety he’ll be caged and guarded by official lapland santa hunters. Happening on Thursday 25th November at 11am until 8pm in the Carnaby Street/Liberty’s area. Visit the Fcaebook page for more details.
